A tree ? Yes, I remember, in Silver Marches.

Kyrie are a Dragginglance race... But it's also a Greek word for "Lord".

"Arcana" means "mystery", and it's often used for magic -- usually as the word "arcane". I don't know for certain, but I'm assuming that Kyrie Arcanaon is referreing to some powerful wizard ruler.

Agree for Sumbril, but I found this and it seems ... funny:

tumbrel [ tmbr#601;l ] (plural tumbrels) or tumbril [ tmbr#601;l ] (plural tumbrils)

noun
Definition:

1. cart carrying prisoners to be guillotined: a cart used during the French Revolution to carry condemned prisoners to be executed by guillotine

2. military cart: a covered cart formerly used to carry ammunition and equipment for the artillery

[14th century. < Old French tumberel< tomber "fall"]

The Kyrie are indeed a DRAGONLANCE race. Their supposed origins as a race of mountain-dwelling humans whose exposure to the Graygem resulted in their "hawk-men" like form, suggests they are Krynn-specific.

However, given the prevalence of portals and gateways scattered about Toril during the older editions, perhaps a small tribe of kyrie crossed over to the Realms.

KYRIE (from Answers.com)
1.
1. A brief petition and response used in various liturgies of several Christian churches, beginning with or composed of the words “Lord, have mercy.”
2. A brief petition and response that together comprise the first item of the Ordinary of the Roman Catholic Mass.
2. A musical setting of either of these sets of petition and response.

[Late Latin K[ymacr]rie (eleison), from Greek Kūrie eleēson, Lord, have mercy : Kūrie, vocative of kūrios, lord, master + eleēson, aorist imperative of elein, to show mercy (from eleos, mercy).]

This was me playing with language and replacing eleison with arcanon; if you like, this could refer to the establishment of a number of holy songs in Mystra's or Azuth's worship in this year....or it could mean something else entirely--your call.

From Volo's Guide To All Things Magical, p.42:
"Jasmal: Jasmal is a durable, very hard gem. It is found in small veins or, very rarely, larger seam deposits in the Thunder Peaks and the Spine of the World mountains. When polished, jasmals catch sunlight or torchlight and give off haloes of amber light, although they themselves remain transparent and colorless. Jasmals are usually cabochon cut and thus appear as small, glassy globes of orange light when worn on cloaks or tunics.
Jasmal is so hard that it can hold a cutting edge and even be worked into small nonmetallic weapons or mounted in a row along a blade. In this latter use, it is prized for its ability to take multiple or complex enchantments that the strike of the blade can visit upon victims whenever the jasmals strike for damage. Powdered jasmal is also a favored ingredient in enchantment baths for magical armor and in the ink formula for the spell Veladar's vambrace."

And you probably won't. 548 was one of the "missing" years that I spotted on the original Roll (along with 382, 722 and 977), and Steven was gracious enough to let me "fill in" the names. George stopped me at 977, but I had already turned in the others.

(long-winded non-canon explanation follows)
"Eloene" was an IMC elven phrase along the lines of "dancing in (sorcerous) light." Many elven (and, later, human, which is where it was co-opted into the common tongue) stage productions featured soliloquies or arias with the actor bathed in faerie fire or similar illuminating magics. It is an especially popular device in bawdy human festhall productions. This usage later was later expanded to refer to anyone strongly backlit by a light source or infused with a visible deific halo, or any individual with vibrant reddish or light flaxen hair. Which, of course, gives Eloene Bride a number of possible visual choices.

I don't think it's necessary to understand the "meaning" of each year name as this potentially closes off realmslore possibilities.

The year 1206 DR could be the year that an ancient elven cabal of wizards known as the Sarune is formed in Evereska, or the wizard Lordrar of Halruaa creates a new servant creature which he names a sarune, or the year that the ancient dwarven delve of Sar's Rune (which history and human historians have over the centuries shortened to Sarune) is re-discovered in the Stormhorns etc. etc.

Sometimes in the Realms, it's best not to explain everything.

Well, it's not that I necessarily want to know exactly what happened in each year... It's just that some of these really are odd words. I want to know that they aren't misspellings or anything like that. I've been removing things from this oddball list as soon as we find some meaning for them -- even if it's just a definition from Old English or something similar.

I knew the word best from the 80's song "Kyrie" by Mr. Mister... Of course, I was 11 or 12 when I first heard the song, and thought that "Krie, elison" was "Carry a laser". It didn't make any sense, but it was still a cool song.

I actually had to sing a version of a song called Kyrie in middle school choir. It was not the 80's song though, it was a choral piece.

I don't know for a color, but I found this and hope thats help:

The boy's name Shandon sh(an)-don, also used as girl's name Shandon, is a variant of Shan (Gaelic), and the meaning of Shandon is "old, wise".

When I visited Bali about 15 years ago, I had the opportunity to hear a kindly old man playing both a sarune [that he'd made himself] and the Javanese saron. The saron is like a trough metallophone which, at first, didn't seem to compliment the sound from the sarune very well, but eventually when the two were played at the same time, the production of a eerie, almost ghostly weave of music became apparent.

It's an experience I'll always remember.

I just spent some more time playing with the list...
Here's the current version.

Some of the coding got weird on the footnotes; I'm not sure why, but I suspect part of it is googlepage's own weirdness -- it's adding in code I didn't put there. When the income tax refund comes in, I think I'm going to spring for a real website of my own.

"The Sarune" of the Realms are not musical instruments, but a league of hidden-until-that-year female human crossbreeds-with-NDA sorceresses, who infamously NDA in the year named for them, only to be defeated by NDA. The few survivors went into hiding again, and their descendants still survive today, just waiting to sneak into the plots of novels (wherefore all of these NDAs).
The preceding is from some of Ed's original campaign lore-notes, as censored by yours truly to comply with extant NDAs.
Right now, I think I'll go and NDA with NDA after I tear my clothes off.

Oh, Wooly, you say such NICE things to a lass.
Which leaves me, glistening lips parted slightly in anticipation, more than willing to urge you to participate. I will need Your tongue to NDA my trembling NDA, before you apply the whip I'll hand you to my NDA until I NDA, and sobbingly beg you for more.
Being the upstanding hamster I know you to be, I'm sure I can rely on you to NDA me until my NDA erupts in NDA and leaves me writhing in NDA after NDA until we collapse together in a puddle of NDA on the floor.
Whereupon, of course, you'll need to get out the feather duster and apply it with brutal gentleness to my NDA, probing deeply in a vain attempt to satisfy me.
For I am, of course, never sated.

And for the rest of you scribes who read this, those who are offended really should launder their minds. The ASSUMPTIONS you make when your eyes behold "NDA"! Well, I NEVER!

Well, as G&S said, hardly ever . . .

Being the upstanding hamster I know you to be, I'm sure I can rely on you to NDA me until my NDA erupts in NDA and leaves me writhing in NDA after NDA until we collapse together in a puddle of NDA on the floor.
Whereupon, of course, you'll need to get out the feather duster and apply it with brutal gentleness to my NDA, probing deeply in a vain attempt to satisfy me.
For I am, of course, never sated.

And for the rest of you scribes who read this, those who are offended really should launder their minds. The ASSUMPTIONS you make when your eyes behold "NDA"! Well, I NEVER!

Well, as G&S said, hardly ever . . .

Did she say puddle of DNA???

My Lady, we appreciate all the lore you share with us... We just don't notice it immediately, because the rest of your post gets us all hot and bothered!

Wow. Thy Lady's NDA's are definitely NSFW!

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

My Lady, you've once again rekindled my love for the once-dreaded NDA.

And waste no time with the Hamster. A Loremaster Most High is ALL Loremaster, if you know what I mean?

Currently re-reading through Volo's Guide to All Things Magical and it seems that, much like jasmal of the Year of the Jasmal Blade, shandon is a gemstone (and is specifically noted as being "...used by skilled clothiers to adorn veils and robes...") (VGtATM, p.49)

The same goes for orl, as "Those who work with magic know orl as a potent explosive..." (VGtATM, p.46)
